You need to explain exactly what you mean by "failure". You haven't given enough information for anyone to be able to help you. What specifically went wrong when you tried MadWifi?

Looks like you need to install GNU Sharutils. I imagine Fedora has a package for it.

If I remember rightly, this is because you need to have the source for your current kernel installed.

You shouldn't need to upgrade your kernel or recompile it. You need to install the kernel source RPM for the version of the kernel you're running. You should really have checked the software requirements to see what you need: http://madwifi.org/wiki/Requirements.

Thanks Nylex....

My problem solved.
Actually it was very difficult to resolved dependencies when i tri to build madwifi from source.

later I install another LAN card (not wireless) and configured it for using Internet.

I just run the following command ....
http://madwifi.org/wiki/UserDocs/Distro/RedHat
Quote:
yum install madwifi madwifi-kmdl-2.6.21-1.3194.fc7
Its resolved dependencies and also upgrade my current kernel to latest.
just Reboot

And all are done.

I use GUI wireless tools to make my wireless card work (configuring).

Before Running YUM I Install Livna repository
for yum to work.

Thanks Nylex Again
